Activities Pictured at Littleover First Aid Post 1939

15 mins United Kingdom

Littleover is a suburb of Derby, an industrial town that is home to Rolls Royce's aero engine factory where the Merlin engine for the Spitfire was manufactured during the Second World War. This made the town a potential target for Hitler's bombers. Although fifty people lost their lives during air raids between 1940 and 1942 the town emerged from the war relatively unscathed. Even so, it's good to know that the first aid provision in Littleover was the best it could be.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
